Easter weekend

We had a busy but fun Easter weekend. We spent Good Friday with Peter's side of the family, Saturday with Becky's side, and Sunday with some friends at our house. Click here to see some of the best pictures from all the excitement.

Unfortunately, a busy weekend and a not-so-smooth Sunday morning made for a not-so-worshipful Easter service for Peter and I. Last night when all was quiet, we decided to pull out our Book of Common Prayer and read through "The Great Vigil of Easter" together. It was a good time to remember why we were celebrating all weekend. Both of us were struck by the part of the liturgy that read, "How wonderful and beyond our knowing, O God, is your mercy and loving-kindness to us, that to redeem a slave, you gave a son." Thanks be to God for his amazing gift.
